Set in the heart of a 12 acre fruit farm just 1 mile from the sea and overlooked by the stunning Sierra de Tejeda mountains, La Finca is a beautiful traditional Hacienda 30 minutes from Malaga in Andalucia, Spain, full of charm and character.
The house is built in the style of a typical old Spanish hacienda, around a cool courtyard with palm trees, a fountain and an abundance of fragrant flowers. It is divided into three villas each with 4 bedrooms , bathrooms and sitting rooms. This arrangement makes for a wonderful house party. The family can be together but still be able to get away when families or friends are too enthusiastic! The feeling of space which we have tried to capture in the house and gardens is reflected in the countryside and one can walk for miles through olive groves, along a latticework of paths. This really is a beautiful part of the world and La Finca del Nino is the perfect base from which to explore it. Its level mature and safe gardens are ideal for young families.
Just 30 minutes from Malaga, and a mile from the beach, the Finca is located in the hamlet of Benajarafe Alto, in an area famous for raisins , olive oil and tropical fruits. There are a number of local beaches within easy reach, from the dark sandy beaches of Benajarafe and Torre del Mar to the more dramatic rocky coves and beaches of Nerja, Maro and Marina del Este. The local water park at Torre del Mar is always a fun day out, or you can take part in a variety of water sports, from sailing and jet skiing to fishing and scuba diving. You could also go riding or trekking in the hills, go Go Karting nearby, or play golf at Añoreta or Baviera. Benajarafe itself is a fishing village with a good little supermarket and numerous small restaurants, Torre del Mar has lots of restaurants, a promenade along the sea and a street market every night in summer, and Malaga itself has plenty to offer.
La Finca del Niño is east of Málaga in Benajarafe between Rincón de la Victoria and Torre del Mar. Directions given on booking.

Each villa has 4 bedrooms, as well as its own fully-equipped modern kitchen, either two or three bath or shower rooms, a patio, comfortable bedrooms and sitting rooms with TV and CD players. The villas all have fireplaces (though we do not have to light them very often), and there are fans in all the bedrooms. WiFi access is available . We have a really excellent cook who can be organised to prepare Spanish and Moroccan meals during your stay if you so choose. We can even organise a party for you with visiting flamenco and/or blues groups.
The villas nestle in grounds made up of terraces, level gardens and fruit fields and orchards full of lemons, mangos, lychees ,oranges, olives and figs. There is a large swimming pool surrounded by lawns and pergolas, a separate toddlers’ pool, a championship-standard tennis court and three barbecues so you can make the most of the balmy evenings. There is also a kitchen garden where vegetables are available when they are in season.
This beautiful part of the world is very inspiring for art and literature lovers and with this in mind we run painting and writing holidays at the Finca. The programmes include accommodation, food, and of course expert tuition from a selection of writers and artists. Please see the website for dates and further details. This is also an ideal location for walking holidays and for bird watching, especially with the River Guadalhorce, the Parque Natural of the Montes de Malaga and the Parque Natural of the Sierra Tejeda and Zafarrya nearby. And if you;’re getting married, why not do it here at the Finca, where you can get married by the pool under a flowery pergola. We can organise catering, flowers, photography and entertainment so you can relax and enjoy yourself.
